At Vacuum, Pump & Compressor, Inc., we view things through an engineering model. We believe we must evaluate your current system to obtain the necessary data essential for proper analysis and application. Knowing how a correct system should function and understanding the end result of the customer’s process, we apply the proper math and physics to achieve the engineered conditions of service.
We believe a properly sized system increases performance, while decreasing energy, down time, and consumables. Our outside engineering staff works on site parameters to insure optimization of process, while adding the benefit of reliability and energy efficiency. Our inside engineering team is capable of handling custom solutions through the design build process. We have a new spacious facility set up for custom manufacturing. It includes steel and stainless steel working machinery, overhead cranes, machining equipment , and paint booth. We have several testing bays and test up to 300 HP on site. This in-house efficiency allows us to fabricate custom components, structural bases, supports, and sound enclosures in less time while saving you money.
In a custom solution integrating controls is a process that can be both time and labor consuming. Coordination can be complicated, but at VPC you can rely on our years of experience. We provide control systems as simple as starters and Variable Frequency Drives to full remote automation control panels. Our team builds control systems that are easily integrated into your existing system. We offer a variety of solutions using interfaces that allow for easier monitoring, control, troubleshooting, and levels of protection.
VPC strives to make your layout, installation and start up process a smooth experience. That is why proper planning and attention to detail are always on our minds. Our service technicians and engineers are available for test run and start up services as required.
A food processor was not able to achieve proper sealing on a bagging application. VPC helped improve their system by adding proper equipment and control. A dairy was burning up heat exchangers on their evaporation process. VPC engineers worked with the plant engineer to remedy multiple problems with piping and equipment. There is no need to put up with chronic process issues. Let a VPC engineer help improve your system today.
At Vacuum, Pump & Compressor we believe we need to offer engineering services based on correct measurement and accurate results. That is why we have invested in tens of thousands of dollars of equipment solely for this purpose. We believe our audits will give you the most comprehensive information in order to make decisions and work with electrical providers.
Vacuum is an energy intensive process requiring input electricity to power the motor and energy to cool and move the sealant through the pump. Whether your system consists of large 50hp+ units or many rotary-vane and liquid ring pumps, we have studies to fit your need. VPC’s custom engineered data logging system measures kW, Vacuum, and Flow directly from the process. Vacuum Audits also provide great indication of pumps that are in need of repair to prevent higher costs resulting from failure.
The cost to produce vacuum is significant and growing everyday as the price of electricity and raw materials increases. VPC Plant Air Audit’s provide expertise and physical data in helping to improve your vacuum system. VPC has the knowledge, test equipment and laboratory diagnostics to fulfill the monitoring demands of the program.
